Fantasy and Sci-fi book series I want to read in 2022

Welcome back to the blog! So last year was a great reading year. My reading tastes expanded and I read some books that I really never thought I’d pick up. My reading has definitely become a lot more diverse in that way. I’m going to continue that journey but I believe I need to pick up some more books in my much-beloved genre, and that is fantasy. I’ve made a list (as usual) of all the series I want to read this year. Read on to find out which ones are a priority.


Books with are a priority.

1- The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan – This is one of those series that I’ve thought of reading for ages. Naturally, books this big are intimidating but I can’t explain how excited I am to pick it up. I’m hoping to read it sometime at the beginning of the year. I’ve heard so many good things about this one 😍 (⭐)

2- Dune by Frank Herbert – I’m the kind of person who likes to make up her own mind about things. I’ve heard a whole lot of mixed things about this one. I’ll admit I’m a little worried about reading it but it’s definitely high on my list for the year. If you’ve read it do let me know how you feel! (⭐)

3- The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson This is the year I finally read a Brandon Sanderson book. I’m determined to get to this one as soon as possible. I’ve only ever heard good things when it comes to this series and I have a very strong feeling I’m going to end up loving this. (⭐)

4- The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – This chunky book is definitely on my list. I might be planning a readalong of this one on my bookstagram (if any of you are interested in joining) sometime in February. Apparently, I’m not the only one who has put off reading this. I love Samantha Shannon’s writing and the synopsis mentions dragons so you bet I’m sold.

5- Jade City by Fonda Lee – I meant to read this series last year but at some point, it completely slipped my mind. I saw it on my to-read list on Goodreads and thought ‘why haven’t I read this yet??’ so this is very high on my list for the year. (⭐)

6- A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin – I picked this one up a few years back at the wrong time. I had an internship and truthfully didn’t have the mental capacity to read much of anything let alone a book this complex. I’m hoping to start it over again this year so I guess we’ll see.

7- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – I don’t really know if this one is a good idea. I’ve been told the wait for the third book has been super long and there still isn’t much news about it. Am I going to read it anyway? You bet.

8- Malice by John Gwynne – This one seems to be a really beloved series for a lot of people. It’ll be my first by the author and ah I’m so excited!! this sounds like something I’d love honestly. (⭐)

9- Red Rising by Pierce Brown – I feel like everyone and their mother has read this one. The praise is never-ending and I keep seeing the series everywhere. Definitely a priority this year. (⭐)

10- The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch – I personally haven’t seen this one around a lot but when you mention something along the lines of found family and they happen to be a little devious you can definitely count me in. (⭐)

11- Skyward by Brandon Sanderson – You’ll find a lot of Sanderson on this list. My mind has been buzzing with all his releases so I decided to try most of them out. Skyward is more sci-fi which admittedly, I don’t read a whole lot of but I own the first book and I’m pretty excited to give it a go. (⭐)

12- The hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien – I’ve never read a Tolkien book before. When I asked for opinions I got a lot of mixed responses. Am I intimidated? Definitely but it’s an adventure I’d really like to experience.

12- Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson – Last Sanderson on this list I promise. I bought the trilogy recently and I’m determined to get at least book one read this year. (⭐)

13- Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb – I’ve heard a lot of good things about Robin Hobb. This has been on my tbr for a really long time. I think it’s time to stop delaying it. (⭐)


The Bronzed Beasts is the only book I have left to read in The Gilded Wolves trilogy. I’m so sad that the series is ending. I loved these books with my whole heart and I know I’ll love this one too.

To finish The Witcher series is my highest priority this year. I read the two short story collections, as well as the first two books last year and I’m determined to finish up the books this year. I really love this series and I’m excited to see where the story goes.

I always talk about Strange the Dreamer being one of my favourite books ever and yet I still haven’t read Muse of Nightmares. This year I need to finish it.

I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone a few years back and remember really enjoying it. I’ve been meaning to get back to finish the series. Will this year be it? I sure hope so.

I started The Bone Season last year and loved it. I got my copy of The Mask Falling recently and I’m a little over halfway through The Song Rising. These books just give me all the vibes. It’s sci-fi with a twist of fantasy and a really unique plot.


Are there any book series you’re hoping to start or finish in 2022?

  1. oo i also really want to start the wheel of time series. i enjoyed the first season of the show and that kind of motivated me to try the books too. the name of the wind is AMAZING, & it can be read as a standalone if you don’t want to wait too long for the third book! good luck and happy reading ✨


  2. I still need to finish the Red Rising series, and I’ve had Bronzed Beasts on my Kindle since it was released. I’m determined to get to it soon!


  3. I have SO many of these on my list as well. High fantasy requires so much dedication. I feel like like so few of us read multiple fantasy series at the same time while my partner has only been working through The Expanse series for the past 4 years. I realized trying to read this much SFF might not be sane for me haha


  4. Ooh, I’ve read or started more than a few of these series and have other on my TBR as well! We have almost the exact same taste in books.

    I just started Jade City last month and it is SO GOOD! I kept putting it off because I knew I would love it and reading it as soon as I got almost felt like eating dessert first when there were so many other books on my TBR. I finally just picked it up and it met and exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to see what you think of it! I’m also going to try and finish The Witcher series this year. I think I’m about halfway through the series? I might have to reread a couple of the books just for a refresher.

    Some other books/series that stood out to me were The Name of the Wind and A Song of Ice and Fire. I’m interested to see what you think of these. I liked The Name of the Wind a lot, but I didn’t like the way the author portrayed women. I’m conflicted about whether I want to pick up the next book in the series once the author finishes it.

    I’ve heard a lot about Game of Thrones and even considered reading the series or watching the show, but ultimately decided it wasn’t for me. From what I’ve gathered the author portrays a very nihilistic view of the world that I would find disappointing. I’m interested to see what your take on this is.


  5. Good luck with your fantasy tbr! I’ve been trying to prioritize lots of fantasy books, but I really need to find the time to commit to actually finishing them. My goal is to finish The Bronzed Beasts also. Happy 2022 reading ❤


  6. I hope you will enjoy all of these!
    There are quite many on here that I also want to read/continue! Like WoT, Dune and The Lies of Locke Lamora!


  7. Skyward is fantastic, I highly recommend the series!! It was my first series by Brandon Sanderson and it really blew me away 🥰 I also really need to finish The Bronzed Beasts, I love the books but haven’t got around to reading the finale yet!


  8. Love your post!
    One of the series i want to finish this year is the EarthSea Quartet by Ursula Le Guin. Also if you listen to audiobooks i recommend listening to the Hobbit on it the one narrated by Rob Inglis. And also the name of the wind audio book narrator is really good!
